Genting Casino Review
Take a look at Genting Casino logo. Does it remind you anything? Frankly speaking, it reminds us the logo of Hydra Organization, the bad guys from Captain America films. Even the name of this website sounds a bit creepy and very suitable for a villain in a superhero movie! So, is Genting Casino as bad as its potential prototype? Let’s see! It boasts a good reputation and offers a pretty cool selection of games. Live games are offered too! Yes, sounds attractive, but there is nothing perfect in this world. As a new
agent of Hydra player, you can expect a bonus of 100% match up to €1,000. But the wagering requirements are kinda crappy - 50 times the bonus! And to make it worse, the casino is available only to the UK players.
- Massive focus on live dealer games;
- License from the UK;
- Well-known identity and brand;
- Good reputation among watchdog portals;
- 24/7 Live chat player support.
- 50x the bonus wagering requirements, only mainland UK players may claim the bonus;
- Not all games count toward the bonus equally and betting restrictions apply;
- Huge list of restricted countries and jurisdictions.
Genting Group has 50 years of history behind it. The brand is well-known in the UK, where they have over 40 land-based casino opened. In the About Us section they boast with things like “$33 billion market capitalisation”, “35k employees worldwide”, and such, that sound impressive, but have little to do with the actual online casino. Nevertheless, the casino has excellent reputation and few to none issues with customers.
Genting is a highly respectable casino with an excellent reputation from loyal customers.
The website doesn’t suck at all. We’ll even go as far as to say that it looks cool and modern, with red and black colors never getting old, convenient instant play lobby, and smooth animations.
Customer Support: The support is UK-based (meaning there’s a good chance they’ll actually speak proper English), and works 24/7 (except Christmas Day). You can reach them through live chat, email, and phone (by requesting a callback).
Banking: The banking options kinda suck. First of all, the list is short to start with - debit/credit cards, Skrill, and through their land-based UK casinos. Ugh, imagine having to walk somewhere to give them money in 2017. Second, the Skrill deposits are only available to Gold VIP members or higher (that’s the third level), and the minimum Skrill deposit is €50. To sum it up, you’re stuck with credit cards. Deal with it.
Software and Game Variety
Genting Casino smartly populated their game selection to the most well respected software companies, having Playtech, IGT, Nextgen, Novomatic, Evolution Gaming, and Cryptologic all contribute titles for you to play. Overall, there are over 300 games available:
- Slots: Magic Castle, Just Jewels, Dancing Dragon;
- Jackpots: Gladiator, Wolf Run, Siberian Storm;
- Table games: Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat;
- Video poker: Jacks or Better, Aces and Faces, Deuces Wild;
- Sports betting.
Mobile and Live Games
Right away when you go to the Genting Casino website, they make it clear that you can grab their mobile app to play their games with. This is a good sign because mobiles apps generally shell out better performance which offer a fast gaming experience. You’ll have a selection of the most popular games via the mobile version of their site, so nothing to worry about there. Oh, and don’t forget: you can also play their live games with your mobile device as well.
As for live games, they have separated it into what looks like a general section and a VIP section. The general section offers Baccarat, Roulette, 3 Card Poker, and Blackjack. The VIP section sees you off with Roulette, Blackjack, and Baccarat Squeeze. The VIP sections are only available from 5PM to 5AM UK time.
Bonuses and Promotions
Genting Casino offers a 100% first deposit match up to €1,000. The bonus is subject to 50x wagering requirements. Just on the edge of being crap, if you ask us. The offer is only available to players from mainland UK.
Apart from this, the casino offers various other promotions that change frequently. Like, really frequently - be sure to check the website often for new offers.
You will love the availability of non-stop promotions in case you decide to play there from time to time.
There is also a Comp Point program in place where every €100 wagered will net you some Genting Points.
